Operation Snowball

Hey Adults!  We need your help too!

Join our Staff at H2O as we encourage, mentor, and support the Student Staff team!

What is Operation Snowball?

Operation Snowball is powered by Heart Haven Outreach and is an international youth program that empowers student leaders through prevention education, community advocacy, and leadership development to create a positive impact on not only oneself but others as well.  The Valley View chapter of Operation Snowball is an adult directed/teen led organization assembled of teens from both Romeoville and Bolingbrook High School! We are much more than a drug and alcohol prevention group. We provide leadership training and opportunities to help prepare teens for college and beyond.  Teens will help put on a weekend event each semester compiling activities and topics chosen by the student staff based on prevention and mental health.


Snowball is a great place to:

      • Make new friends
      • Spend fun time with peers
      • Have Fun
      • Participate in teen-led small group discussions
      • Discover something about yourself
      • Learn ways you can positively impact others
